We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. forwarding an API method request to a third party API.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
In order to use this website, a user must first complete registration using their Google account. During registration, users are required to give access to information stored in their Google account (email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest and help uniquely identify you to the site. At your option, you may also provide addtional information (name, company, timezone, country) about yourself, but it is not required.
We use "cookies" on this site, but not the kind with sugar and gluten in them. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's (that's you) hard drive to help us improve access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. We use Google Authentication for that stuff, so Google actually sets the cookies for logins. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site, although we really disagree with making assumptions about your interests. You never know, this could be completely boring to the average person.
Seriously though, usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site or used to identify you beyond the information you shared with us.
The best way to see what we do with our cookies is to just look at the code.
We partner with Open Source software developers to provide specific services related to their software. When a user like you uses our services, we may share some small amount of your information with the developers to better provide these services to everyone using them. The developers are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing launch services for instances.
You should also be aware we launch instances on third-party providers. When you launch instances using our service, you should choose providers whom you trust to best launch your instances.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that even though we really shouldn't have to spell this out, we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. It was recently discovered that there are other people besides us on the Internet. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site (you will notice a dip in awesome) and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information, which is pretty much everyone.
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys. Even though you probably will ignore these surveys, we want you to know participation in any survey is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and company), and demographic information (such as country and timezone). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
